Cultivate a campus network at the heart of the city

A multi-site university

Located right at the heart of Montpellier, UM’s various sites advocate a university life that is fully integrated in the urban fabric. All sites are located near Tramway 1 line and 4 line and form a real campus network.

Ranking as the 2nd French city where it is pleasant to study, Montpellier enjoys exceptional advantages: 300 days of sun per year, easy access to the sea (15 minutes’ drive) and France’s largest pedestrian city centre.

Optimal studying and working conditions

A community outreach network has been set up to make university life as easy as possible. Offices for information, integration and career guidance services, international relations, physical and sports activities as well as preventive medicine and health promotion allow for proximity within the university community.

Dynamic, independent student life

UM provides its students with premises for recreation and socializing: the Maisons des étudiants (student centers) are run by students, for students, and provide space for exchange and creation.

The University also organizes cultural events (concerts, conferences, film screening, exhibitions) and promotes artistic production (recording studios, workshops and more).
